Customer Question

Do you know of any employment advocates/social workers who can help me with various job problems that I am having? I am working as a caregiver/music therapist for a non-profit agency-Helping Hands in East Lansing; and I am 66 yrs old. I have worked with a rehab. counselor in the past, but she closed my case as soon as I was hired into my current job three years ago. I have needed someone to advocate for me on several occasions where I was injured on the job; and my employer treated it lightly, even though I suffered a mild Traumatic Brain Injury twice in 14 months. The activity coordinator has verbally harrassed me, this past year, as well on numerous occasions.
Thanks for your help!
